- Soften 1 stick of unsalted butter, mix it with 2 tbsp white miso paste. Add chopped scallions or shallots to taste.
The only challenging part of making miso butter is, potentially, finding miso paste. I ventured to a local Asian grocery store, stood in front of the miso section for about 5 minutes while Jamie yelled, "MISO!" and then picked the palest miso paste I could find.
Once you have made miso butter, I defy you to find something that it does not improve - it's sort of like caramelized onions in this regard. Mrs. D originally served it on sweet potatoes. I have found it to be delicious on asparagus, broccoli, chicken, white potatoes, fish, bread, a spoon. I have a miso butter problem.
Thanks to Josh and his mom for introducing us to this amazing condiment!
